77000 Tons

grito

77,000 metric tons of heavy fuel oil in 7 pictures. I took this 10 years ago during the Prestige oil spill, where I did volunteer work for a week.

Five years later after the cleaning activities, a study found that people participating in the cleaning activities, many of them volunteers, suffered several health problems, such as lung, cardiovascular, and chromosome diseases.

Another study found that shit, yes sewer shit bacteria would clean this mess much quicker and better… Que vamos hacer?
